The Thing About Rights…

Dear Canadians

Police are now stopping white heterosexuals for covid violations

if everyone had just worn a mask and stayed at home

instead of proving how crappy home is or what a self jerk one is

we coulda have been getting to reopen instead of locked down.

Public Health and safety actually does restrict individual rights, we have freedom owing to responsibilities as citizens

not because of war dead.

Quebec, the New Orleans/Louisiana of Canada, aka France, is rioting

and back east the Atlantic bubble has a one year anniversary of a public shooting done by the most prolific of mass and serial body crimes: White Heterosexual Male, middle aged

Canada has yet to have monthly such events, several a year has been a surprise, while the USA is daily shootings like every day is the ok corral, only now with more accurate barrels and ammo in chambers or feeds

or even worse, drones
